Customer Testimonials

“Johnstone’s Decorating Allowance scheme has been fantastic for us at Warwick District Council. The decorating vouchers are great value for money, offer excellent delivery options and allow us to be flexible. Our residents are happy to decorate their homes in quality products in the colours that suit their homes.”

Sean McCabrey, Repairs & Maintenance Manager – Warwick District Council

“The Johnstone’s decorating centre staff are really friendly and make residents feel welcome. If needed, they deliver quickly and we have had nothing but positive feedback. The major reason we moved to this scheme was the cost savings to the business of using one contractor. The online voucher management system is easy to use and allows us to change our offer at any time making it really flexible.”

Julie Jones, Neighbourhood Manager – First Choice Homes Oldham
